Combined Charging System

The graph for electric vehicle sales is increasing. It will be at a much higher peak in the times to come. Many countries have improved the charging system of electric vehicles. Many companies have also brought their own charging system. America has its own combined charging system. And Europe’s Combined Charging System is 2, it is also used in India. It is a good system for charging electric vehicles. In this article, we will know what is Combined Charging System.

What is Combined Charging System

  • Electric vehicles can be charged with the combined charging system. Combined charging system can do AC and DC charging.
  • It provides 350 kW of power. Which can use Combo 1 or Combo 2 connectors.

*It has two connector extensions to IEC 62196 Type 1 and Type 2 connectors. These are connected with the two pins given below for DC charging. These are also called Combo 1 and Combo 2.

What is the charging power of Combined Charging System?

  • AC and DC charging is done to the CCS. the help of onboard charger in AC charging, a four wheeler and heavy vehicle can be charged from normal AC 2.5 KW to 3 KW power in 5 to 6 hours.
  • Fast Charging with high power rated onboard charger and fast charging power from 7.5 KW to 22 KW.
  • In DC charging, vehicles are charged with the help of level 1, level 2 and DC fast charging.
  • Level 1 DC charging uses a 120 V plug. It operates at an output voltage of 48 V to 72 V up to a maximum of 200 Amp. takes the stream. It generates power from 10 KW to 15 KW.
  • Produces power from 30 KW to 150 KW in Level 2 DC charging. Which generates power up to 1000 V. With this, 40 miles can be traveled after 2 hours of charging. They can also be used for charging at home. For DC fast charging, you have to go to their station itself.

Countries Supports Combined Charging System?

  • CSC is supported by many automobile companies. Like BMW, Daimler, FCA, Jaguar, General Motors, Group PSA, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mazda, MG, Polester, Renault, Rivian, Tesla, Mahindra and the manufacturer is supported.

Level 1 DC 120 V plug, 48 V – 72 V Output Voltage
Level 2 30 KW – 150 KW, 1000 Voltage

What is Combined Charging System 2

  • CCS 2 is better than CCS. Its charging capacity is much better. It has been adopted in Europe. EV drivers are getting a lot of benefit from this.
  • CCS 2 supports full AC. AC charging level 1 and level 2 are used in this. DC charging is also done with the AC plug which is much better.
  • CCS 2 is 240 V, 80 A and 3 phase with capacity up to 43 KW. In this, Level 1 is used for DC charging. This AC plug is given 2 and 4 pins to use PE, CP and G. Which gives a capacity of 28 KW with 2 pin and 56 KW with 4 pin.
  • DC level 2 is much better than level 1. Which gives power up to 500 KW. In this, a colling system is provided to cool the wire. So that the wire does not get hot so that the charger can perform better. Gives power up to 100 KW even with Uncolling system in DC level 2.
